Kaman K-1200 K-MAX Helicopter

56.3k zap210  5.2 years ago

Instructions:
- Throttle up to full (Always full)
- VTOL UP for collective (altitude)
- Pitch and Roll for cyclic.
- Yaw for right/left turn.

Activation Groups
- AG1 for release the cargo.

Notes:
- I recommend 'Yaw' for right/left turn.
- Servo flaps are not simulated. This K-MAX uses swashplates instead of servo flaps.
- Of course, You may disconnect the wire (AG1) before takeoff.
- No gyroscopes.

Have fun!

    It’s very accurate just extremely finicky in flight

    You should remake this with the new helicopter rotors 😀👍

    @zap210 it’s probably rhe two rotors hitting each other

    @Planesandwhatnot I tuned it to stabilize very carefully. I'm glad you liked it!

    This flys extremely well for not having an gyroscope
    It is much easier than some helicopters I’ve seen
    Good job!

    @James76 Surely that boat is heavy for K-MAX. but that'll be a challenge. Thanks!

    @SpiritusRaptor Thanks always. One rotor is clockwise. The other rotor is counterclockwise. They cancel each other's torque. Besides, these rotors work as gyroscopes, makes stability. This mechanics is same as real K-MAX except servo flaps. Actually, I don't know helicopter mechanics well.

    Very nicely done... great control and without gyro's! Any tips on how you managed to get the swashplate(s) working with out rolling one or another? Is it mainly the counter rotation that does this or something else?
